MARIANO, Monaliza Ribeiro; REBOUCAS, Cristiana Brasil de Almeida  and  PAGLIUCA, Lorita Marlena Freitag. Educative game on drugs for blind individuals: development and assesment. Rev. esc. enferm. USP [online]. 2013, vol.47, n.4, pp.930-936. ISSN 0080-6234.

Study aimed to develop and assess an educational game on psychoactive drugs accessible to blind individuals, conducted in three steps: development of the educative game, evaluation by three special education experts, and assessment by twelve blind individuals. As a result, a board game called Drugs: staying clean was developed. In the Alpha version, experts made suggestions regarding the game rules and instructions and the board base, including square texture, game pieces, and Braille writing. In Beta version, we proceeded to the assessment by the blind participants, who suggested changes in the square texture and the addition of Velcro-type material to fix the counters on the board. Then, the Gamma version was played by the last pairs of blind players and was considered by them to be adequate. In the evaluation of the experts, the game was appropriate, as it allowed access to information on psychoactive drugs in a ludic and playful manner.
